Pointillistic trees

Standard

Pointillism is a post-impressionist school of painting exemplified by Georges Seurat and his followers in late 19th-century France, characterized by the application of paint in small dots and brush strokes.

Pointillism is a technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of color are applied in patterns to form an image.

The term “Pointillism” was first coined by art critics in the late 1880s to ridicule the works of these artists, and is now used without its earlier mocking connotation.
